The rental market in New Zealand

IUT has two active Associate Member organizations in New Zealand. Here, as a service to anyone interested, we have collected facts and information about the housing market in general, and rental market in particular. Most of the publications and links are based on other sources, and the authors themselves are responsible for that information. Also below is contact information of different Tenant Unions across New Zealand
